Description

Magewell Eco Capture Quad SDI M.2 is designed for use in small and embedded systems where full-sized PCIe slots are unavailable or impractical, the Magewell Eco Capture Family of cards complements Magewell’s flagship Pro Capture series by offering OEMs and systems integrators a compact capture solution with low power consumption for space-limited applications..

Ideal for use in small and embedded systems where full-sized PCIe slots are not available, the cost-effective Eco Capture family complements Magewell’s flagship Pro Capture series by offering OEM customers a robust capture solution with low power consumption for space-limited applications.

The first four Eco Capture models feature a high-speed PCIe 2.0 bus interface with an M.2 connector and measure just 22x80mm (0.87×3.15in), matching the M.2 2280 size specification. Power consumption by the Eco Capture cards is 30% to 70% lower than Magewell’s Pro Capture cards with similar input signal connectivity and channel count.

Magewell Eco Capture Quad SDI M.2 models are available with drivers for Windows and Linux operating systems. OS-native capture APIs including DirectShow, DirectKS, V4L2 and ALSA are supported, and a comprehensive SDK enables developers to directly access the full feature set of the cards.

Stream replication enables each input channel to be delivered to multiple software applications simultaneously with identical capture parameters. FPGA-based video processing provides high-quality up/down/cross-scaling, picture controls and color space conversion without tasking the host system CPU, while additional processes are performed by software. All four models also support up to 8 channels of embedded audio per input.

Eco Capture Quad SDI M.2

 

The Magewell Eco Capture Quad SDI M.2 provides outstanding performance, capturing four channels of HD or 2K video with embedded audio over 3Gbps SDI interfaces.

The ultra-compact Eco Capture cards measure just 22x80mm (0.87×3.15in), matching the M.2 2280 size specification. Drivers are available for Windows and Linux operating systems. FPGA-based video processing provides high-quality up/down/cross-scaling, picture controls and color space conversion without tasking the host system CPU.
